if engine has carb.try replacing the accelerator pump,when worn out, will cause surging. problem. if engine has carb.try replacing the accelerator pump,when worn out, will cause surging. problem.also check coil. This can be caused by a worn timing belt. The 2.3 has had it's share of timing belt issues. I would get a HAYNES manual and check the timing belt most likely replacing the belt. When the belt is stretched, it has the effect of retarding the timing which will cause the problems you mentioned. These belts on these motors need to be replace every 70,000 miles to avoid this.

Why while accelerating from a stop an automatic car would jerk as if stepping on the gas and letting go repeatedly?

Either you are low in transmission fluid or the transmission is slipping. Take it to a well qualified transmission repair facility.Another possibility is the Throttle position sensor is bad. when the vehicle is off, locate it, it will be on the throttle on the other side of the housing from where the cable connects. you can unplug this and use an ohm meter to check I believe the outside terminals while opening the throttle slowly. If at any time its open the ohms increase or go over the limit then the switch is bad and it sends a closed throttle signal to the computer which cuts off the fuel supply to the engine which creates a bump feeling, or a jerking.

Your 94 camaro V6 started running bad after the clutch was changed when you accelerate a hear a rattling and car does not accelerate properly it sounds horrible any suggestions on what it could be?

The clutch plate center protrudes further on one side than the other. When the clutch was installed, the clutch plate was put in facing the wrong way. What you are hearing is the springs rubbing and scraping the pressure plate. NOT GOOD! Why the car does not accelerate properly is because the center protrusion I talked about earlier is not letting the clutch make complete contact with the flywheel.

Why won't 2004 accord cruise control set?

Make sure you have the main cruise control button depressed. You will then see a display light indiciating "Cruise Control". After that, just use the normal buttons to set, accelerate, and coast. BEWARE, though. The cruise control button for our 2004 Accord stopped letting me keep it in the depressed position, and I can't keep my cruise control on now. Will let you know once the mechanic takes a look at it.
